Our various research projects investigate and exploit the important and exquisite reactivities of redox-active sites (Fe, Ni, Cu, Mo, flavin) in enzymes.
Featuring 51 titles focusing on applications and key topics such as organometallic and bioinorganic, the Inorganic Chemistry Online Books collection offers wide topic coverage, and provides the perfect way to build a reference collection.
All new graduate students must take two placement exams, in organic and physical chemistry, administered at the beginning of each semester. These exams cover topics commonly found in undergraduate courses. Exam results are used to determine undergraduate deficiencies in these areas of chemistry. All deficiencies must be removed by either taking and passing with a grade of "B" an appropriate undergraduate course or by taking again and passing the placement exam. A placement exam can be taken only twice; if the exam is not passed after the second attempt, the appropriate undergraduate course must be completed with a minimum grade of "B" in the first attempt.

The experiments described in thethird edition illustrate a wide variety of topics in inorganicchemistry ranging from classic coordination chemistry to morerecent advances in the fields of organometallic, solid state, andbioinorganic chemistry."
--Professor Margret J.
The included experiments are safe, havebeen thoroughly tested to ensure reproducibility, areillustrative of modern issues in inorganic chemistry, and arecapable of being performed in one or two laboratory periods ofthree or four hours.
The facility staff has significant experience in solution-phase chemistry of nanocrystal/nanowire materials, inorganic synthesis by chemical vapor deposition, physical vapor deposition, and atomic layer deposition. The staff includes experts in techniques of nanoscale fabrication by self-assembly. The facility also supports infrastructure and expertise in solution-based processing of organic thin films, including tools for spin-casting, thermal processing, and UV/ozone treatment.
There is no rigid definition of what constitutes a suitable synthesis. The major criterion by which syntheses are judged is the potential value to the scientific community. For example, starting materials or intermediates that are useful for synthetic chemistry are appropriate. The synthesis also should represent the best available procedure, and new or improved syntheses are particularly appropriate. Syntheses of compounds that are available commercially at reasonable prices are not acceptable. We do not encourage the submission of compounds that are unreasonably hazardous, and this connection, less dangerous anions generally should be employed in place of perchlorate.
The Inorganic Syntheses series is NOT a repository of primary research data, nor is it the place to report new syntheses. It is expected that all syntheses accepted for publication will have already appeared in the primary, peer-reviewed research literature. Thus those syntheses that are found to be widely used by the scientific community or provide a new synthetic entry to a broad range of compounds are most desired for the series. The series offers authors the chance to lay out intricacies of synthesis and purification in greater detail than possible in the original literature, as well as to provide updates of a tried-and-true synthesis.
CH 611 is an advanced inorganic graduate course with a focus on transition metal organometallic chemistry (prerequisite CH 370 or equivalent). As an active participant in this course you will learn about the structural and electronic properties of transition metal organometallic complexes as well as their catalytic applications.
For anyone working in inorganic chemistry, The Inorganic Syntheses series is the complete and up-to-date review of the area, providing the detailed foolproof information needed by lab chemists on procedures for the preparation of important and timely inorganic compounds. With recent volumes covering the latest hot topics and developing areas such as organometallic chemistry, main group chemistry and ligands, co-ordination chemistry and applications in material science, this series is also of use to organic and organometallic chemists, biochemists and materials scientists.
With a thorough review of the materials, methods and techniques required for new syntheses of inorganic compounds, Inorganic Syntheses reflects the new directions in the subject over the last two decades. Many of the new areas of interest covered are characterized by complexity in design and molecules containing specific functional groups and touch on major rapidly developing areas such as metalloenzymology. With up coming volumes reporting the latest procedures by internationally recognized research, Inorganic Syntheses delivers the latest information directly to the scientist or student.
